Default Loehle Paint

Anyone have a phone number that works for Loehle Aircraft Coatings?
I have tried everything except getting a return call from the local Chamber of Commerce.

Default No return call here

Along with my rv4 project we have a Loehle p5151. We have been trying to reach them for some time now. The phone has been disconnected. The emails go out but have not been returned.

I was going to use some of their primer a half-dozen years ago, and was very unimpressed with their service (basically none). I would not be surprised if they were out of business if my experience was typical.

The address on their Contact Us web page in Google maps looks like there isn't much at that location.

A WHOIS search on the domain name gives this:

I have struck out completely on getting any response from Loehle.
The Chamber of Commerce said I was one of several calls they had received and as far as they knew that business no longer existed.

Now I am trying to match my paint and having issues doing that.

Does anyone know the brand or manufacturer Loehle used when they were in business?

Shadetree, sorry for your troubles.
I painted my RV-10 using Loehle paint and of the many different paint products I have ever used, Loehle was by far the best in all aspects.

I believe Mike Loehle had his paint custom formulated to suit his application
and keeping the typical home builder in mind.

I talked to Sandy a number of times but unfortunately my experience and their customer service was much the same as everyone else's.
I don't know if they are still around but I would spend my effort looking elsewhere for matching paint
I talked to them last in 2012.

I tried matching my paint with a local paint company and what they shot and what I got are not even close.

Back to square one.

Go to another paint shop. We where able to have our p5151 blue matched by valspar. Our paint store will not give up until matched.
